to look at it right now. when people talk about obama care they forget about all the positives. the fact that right now for me in college i'm not paying any higher premium. i'm allowed to stay on my parents' health insurance until i'm 26 because of obama care. when i end up finding my own plan which i do plan on doing once i turn 26, i will not be denied for any pre-existing conditions, i'm not going to be denied because i'm a woman, i won't pay any higher charges. i think those are very important things to focus on but back to your point about student loan debt, i don't necessarily see it as a trade-off that way because i know a lot of people will not be able to be covered because of their parents because they're able to stay with them until they're 26 but with student loan, that's something that's tackled in a separate way but putting the two together -- >> i don't know, charlie, it's just expenses. you all have expenses, i got expenses, and i'm just trying to figure out how this is going to work out. look, what do numbers show from this harvard poll, it's that young people are going t

're having this huge argument right now. and i think partly because the obama administration about whether the profit incentive is even relevant in today's world. >> i think that's a fair point. i think it's a very important argument to have. by the way, higher education, the for profit guys are the ones paying taxes, both property and income taxes, whereas the not for property guys are the ones receiving subsidies. as far as i'm concerned, money is money. the only difference in private and public money is ideological. you draw a line between the two. public money becomes purer -- >> but it's worth ten cents on the dollar. >> i don't disagree with you. >> you're one of the old democrats. you're looking around saying what am i. >> i don't -- by the way, it's sort of what we were talking about earlier with iran. i don't think it's a question of choosing one or the other. i think you need to have a healthy balance of both. but if you start off with a regulatory bias against the for profit sector. >> you do. >> i understand, i don't disagree. >> i'm appealing to you, stand up and be -- >> i'm
's exactly right. i was a student at stanford when i heard the movement about divestment from south africa in 1972. in 1971, barack obama was only ten years old so he was very young and never able to appreciate that. what i want to make clear, though, we shouldn't call him militant, we shouldn't call him a terrorist, he's a patriot. he's just like the patriots fighting here many, many centuries ago for equality. and that's what he was. he was a patriot who tried to make sure that his country where he was born, where he controlled would recognize the fact that the majority of people who were african were suppressed by the minority of people who were white, and that has to be changed. he is a patriot who did a great deal in his 27 years in prison and did a great deal as president and continues to have that legacy as a patriot. i am a south african. i am an african, as he said when he got his honorary degree from harvard in 1998. that became a watershed moment of him recognizing who he was, what he was and who he's speaking for. >> but to all of you here in new york, it wasn't just that perso

. that was barack obama in january of 2008. we have a chart of electricity prices right now if we can. they are right now believe it or not at all time highs. people and not talking about it but they will soon. interestingly at the end of the day the epa a cash am out with an announcement that they will be flexible on these new rules and will give states greater with respect to this stuff. going higher and higher and other things going on in the economy, maybe they will pull back a little bit and that will be good for these coal companies particularly natural resources, today it is a 75% even before this news i thought they were turning the corner, they weather the storm. next year fiscal year the consensus is the will make $2.03, two month ago the consensus was $1.25, wall street is coming around to the idea that the bottom line which we know a lot of that was cost savings and things like that but maybe they weathered the storm. this stock is off to the races. lori: what about the fundamentals, the seasonality, the supply, the potential for further exploration of other energy sources
president george w. bush awarded mandela with a presidential medal of freedom and president obama met with mandela once back when he was a senator in 2005. so right now as we await for the president to speak about the passing of nelson mandela. >> i know it will be some heartfelt remarks from the president because when you think about it, it's this nation's first african american president offering sentiments about south africa's first black president, clearly tied together by their roles in history and connected a number of times in person, the obama family connecting with mandela's family in south africa. again you're looking right now outside of nelson mandela's home in johannesburg where people have gathered to remember, to reflect upon the life of the man they call madeva. he is the father of modern south africa, dead at 95. >> interestingly right now a lot of south africans are asleep because it is past midnight in south africa. so they're going to wake up to this news. those who have heard, many of them, probably heard on social media. we saw some reports on twitter and facebo

this live. it will be good stuff and the sitdown with president obama is part of that hardball college tour starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern from american university right here on msnbc. >>> week one of the white house obama care media blitz does continue and today president obama will focus his message on the laws and the benefits for people with pre-existing medical conditions. this as the white house announces some 56,000 people and their successful enrollment in coverage during exchanges. that's more than double the enrollees for the entire month of october and all of this as the administration ramps up, too, december 23rd and the enrollment deadline for january 1st coverage, jim mcdermott, senior member of the house, ways and means committee. >> as we look back at the calendar, it was two weeks ago when they assembled this team, the senate and house strike teams and what was their task versus the daily barrage of messages that we'll see on tap from the white house. can you explain the difference? >> it looks to me like it's all one plan because you really have to keep pushing and letting
obama on the air right now that would be better than the minimum wage. because recall, 40% of unemployed people today are long-term unemployed, disproportionately in the bottom 20% and those people will be hurt by minimum wage increases. but you and i agree that minimum wage people could make more money to support their families better. what's a better policy starting right now that president obama should be talking about instead of what he's doing, which is hurting poor people such they can make more money no matter how much it costs. >> look, just to be clear. i like the question, but i don't agree with the premise. i do think a moderate increase would help. to answer the part of your question that i agree with, here's what i think he should do. the earned income tax is a very important pro work subsidy. this is a good way to help low-wage people. but for childless adults, adults who don't have kids, it's rea y really -- i would increase the childless adult part of the earned income credit so that single folks can make a decent wage, as well. >> so you -- will you acknowledge i didn't
. this is a hallmark of the obama era not just demagoguing the right but also demagoguing elements within the democratic party that one to have a serious conversation about fiscal burdens. stuart: now we have obamacare and it is can out. sure the moderate democrats will say we cannot get reelected if you do this. >> you are seeing that from democrats in purple states taking that kind of line. will you see senate democrats, people like harry reid say we need to start distancing ourselves. stuart: will harry reid say hold on a second, mr. president? not sure about this. >> i will not make that prediction. i don't think he will. i agree with you because the far left which controls the democratic party and has since 1960 with one period of renaissance during the clinton periods but they have run this party and our ideological. they are not pragmatic, they are about remaking the economy into a redistributive model so you won't see that kind of change but there are so few moderate democrats to wage this fight. they have been decimated. stuart: on a moderate democrats right? will they get decima
's death, president obama ordered flags to be flown at half staff. one citizen says no, that is not right. why not? it seems like a gesture of respect. why isn't he lowering the flag? >> pickens county sheriff rick clark doesn't think it has place in south carolina in his county. he says this type of honor should be reserved for americans. nelson mandela is not an her can. he laid out his argument to our local affiliate, whns. take a listen. >> so a sign of respect for what nelson mandela has done. i have no problem with lowering in south africa for their country. but in our country, it is for our people who have sacrificed for our country. >> rick clark says it is the right thing to do at u.s. embassy in south africa but no place here at home. it had been quite easy to keep the flag at half staff. they had a deputy die earlier this week. they already had the flag half staff. they were also honoring pearl harbor. so it would have been easy for them to keep it up. >> he has some support. people say he is doing the right thing. what is the feedback? >> it is overwhelming in support of rick
. that is right, i set it i'm not ashamed to neither is president obama. stuart: well, charles. charles: if you didn't tell me that was "saturday night live," i am thinking the n-word, there are a few words out there i'm thinking of. the president himself that he was proud of obamacare. he said he liked the moniker at one point. that had lit up. this dictation is it would've been the amazing thing in the world. this is a problem, there is racism in the country, but this kind of stuff hurts legitimate arguments, this is the most ridiculous thing i have heard in a long time. i honestly did think it was a skit. first time i saw it, but just watching it thinking it has to be "saturday night live." stuart: i thought here comes something nasty, but obamacare? charles: for some reason he cannot be ridiculed, he cannot be the object of satire. when i saw pictures of george bush as a chimpanzee drawn all the time in newspapers and he was dumb and stupid, you cannot have double standards. stuart: your take on the morality of money, father jonathan and jon stewart after this. hi honey, did you get e toast

of obamacare. just like right before the independence holiday they tried to hide the one-year business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew about the website problems. they continue to try to hide problems on the back end of the website that is delivering information to insurers. they have tried to hide the security problems that exist with the website. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that millions of americans would lose the coverage they like. the president house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will lose access to doctors, pediatricians, and even hospitals they chose. you have to ask what else are they hiding? obamacare is plagued with problems and every american deserving relief from it. this administration has to come clean and explain why and how americans are impacted by this law. this isn't helping americans. it is harming those people who need help the most right now. >> welcome back. >> so part of the republican leadership is they come out talking about jobs and economy but immediate transition to the pro

. >> major, let's turn to obama care healthcare.gov website. it appears there are improvements. shon shoppers have had a better experience. >> reporter: that's right. the first part is much much better. consumers go on the federal health care website, look for a plan, put in financial information, see if they qualify for a financial subsidy from the federal government and select a plan. that part is working better. the second part is not. the data that consumers put in is transferred to insurance companies. in many cases that data doesn't arrive at all or in a garbled fashion. those that think they enrolled won't have purchased a plan. yesterday, it was work jointly with the insurance industry to find a fix. it's the first time officials have brought in the insurance companies to fix the problem. >> major, thank you. >>> joe biden is taking a stand this morning over china's air defense zone. biden arrived in south korea today after wrapping up a two day visit to china. he spoke in beijing about china's territorial dispute with japan. >> china's recent and sudden
old issue, about the income gap, certainly plays a part in the right track-wrong track as another way to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as m

? the u.s. is right now in the middle of one of the biggest pushes to raise wages that i've seen in 20 years working in this field. president obama has called for a $10 minimum wage hike. but, you know, given the gridlock in washington, the states are starting to act. california approved a $10 minimum wage hike and no sooner had that been inked than a consebive placed it on the ballot to go to $12. the high cost cities are pushing for even higher wages. voters in sea-tac, washington, approved a $15 wage. now cities like chicago and new york are calling for wages of similar levels. i think what's driving this is what president obama called the defining challenge of our time in this economics talk yesterday. the fact is, the restaurant industry noted that the majority of the jobs our economy is creating are in these low payment fields like restaurant and retail. these aren't team jobs if they ever were. now tens of millions of adult americans spend their time cycling through these careers, these jobs. at $9 an hour, they're not sustainable. so what the fast food workers are calling for i
